is coming to you live from moscow hello and welcome to the program. will planes have carried out as trikes inside syria and it was widely reported they were sent by israel the target was a shipment of alleged advanced missiles heading for lebanon but these are a defense ministry says it has no knowledge will be anonymous officials who confront that time the second of its kind in less than five months middle east correspondent paula sneer. official is speaking on condition of being anonymous because he is not authorized to speak about a secret israeli military operation we had r.t. has been in touch with the israeli foreign ministry but as of yet they are not prepared to publicly console him at least not to us that such a strike indeed was carried out by the israelis what is interesting is that the strike happened in late thursday into the early hours of friday morning and at that
10:02 am
same time the israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu called for a late night emergency cabinet meeting now we don't have information as to what was exactly the purpose of the goal of that meeting but it certainly does raise on val's the lebanese are complaining that israel has violated. spaces that israel does do this on numerous occasions and has been doing it recently with quite a bit of consistency as well in the past has said that it will pull out all the stops to make sure that there is no transfer of weapons to his been of course the israeli concern is that hizbollah would use any kind of weapons against the jewish state the second time this year that israel has carried out a strike inside syria you remember the first was back in january when israeli fighter jets targeted a sophisticated convoy of cars and missiles that israel believed were on their way to has been that israel and syria share a common border you have the disputed golan heights which israel occupied from
10:03 am
syria back in one thousand nine hundred sixty seven and in recent weeks we've witnessed a flare up in violence and intensions along that border. kohan a contributing editor for u s thinks on foreign policy in focus believes it's unlikely but impossible theron government would have risked provoking on israel that. i think the idea that the syrian government would be shipping arms to has bulla in the midst of the civil war to be a very dubious kind of project i don't i don't see what the logic of that is i think the israelis are intervening it just quietly us is is thinking of intervening because they don't think things are going. exactly the way that the insurgency wants them to go israelis can pretty much a strike as they will in syria what the effect of that is on the
10:04 am
wider arab world i think is the key question here and the israelis may find that while they're able to basically strike it will again syria that also means that it places a very different view so to speak of the civil war in syria and i think at this point the syrians are going to not going to do anything physically but i think they are going to say politically that the israelis are attempting to overthrow the assad government and therefore anybody who supports the overthrow of the also the government is in alignment with tel aviv and that may be a pretty hard sell for israel. well clashes between government forces and rebels rage across syria the opposition has accused the regime of a massacre it's claimed at least fifty people were killed during an assault on
10:05 am
a village they follow and graphic photos apparently show some of the victims that damascus has purposely plays the blame for atrocities on the armed opposition many members of which are radical jihadists this latest massacre allegations follow the us admitting it's now considering arming the rebels so they were in journalist the harm it says on occasions by the opposition always coincide with french foreign pressure on damascus. the opponents of the syrian regime can accuse it of many things but being stupid is not one of these things and it will take a lot of stupidity to time be the massacre is in the evolution of the graphic way relations of human rights right before the decisions are being made each time a big deal and important events because in syria was happening within the us with the council or any other entity and each and every time they would start there were talks about my security and belief in the roads in this this is beyond being by chance any more i do believe it is supersized and to get you to be suspicious
10:06 am
buying more weapons means more messages because they were concerned the news about massacres going through committed by the rebels in the if this does not seem to bother the meeting nations on the u. s. so giving more weapons means more the people and more the people does not in any we mean something good for the country. and there are fears that one of syria's neighbors could descend into civil war on a scale violence has increased significantly in iraq over the past month prompting war is that sectarian unrest could engulf the country we've got the details and expert analysis a little later here on our city. you and force and officials investigating the boston marathon bombings have turned their focus to the we do know one of the suspects radical islamic material was discovered on a computer belonging to the american wife of tamerlan said knive who was killed when police tried to capture him on his list of caffein of has more now. katherine
10:07 am
russell she's a twenty four year old widow of tamerlan and she's been under investigation basically since the identities of the boston bombers were revealed she initially came under scrutiny when authorities discovered female d.n.a. on a piece of a pressure cooker that was used to construct a homemade explosive material she submitted her fingerprints and d.n.a. and authorities say they did not match the sample on the explosives that were found however investigators have also been probing her computer materials and what it turns now now is that authorities have discovered al qaeda is inspire magazine and other so-called radical islamic literature on the computer now the key question is whether this material actually belonged to her or whether it was downloaded by her husband or somebody else so that is the key question that investigators are looking into at the moment if we actually begin with katherine russell i mean she grew up in rhode island the christian daughter of an emergency room doctor and a nurse sort of the epitome of the all-american girl before she met in fact she
10:08 am
graduated high school in two thousand and seven and according to one magazine report her yearbook quote had mentioned that she wanted to grow up and join the peace corps people who knew her said that this bright girl with a passion for learning and travel had really radically transformed since meetings are not she ended up becoming a college dropout she married him converted to islam and stayed at home and took care of the children the same could be said of himself actually there was an interesting interview with an ex-girlfriend of his who said that the man she met and dated in two thousand and six had transformed from a pot smoking party boy to an anti american islam minister jihadi essentially that is how she described him it's unclear what prompted the transformation in case but we do know that much of his radicalization officials believe was inspired by al qaeda in the arabian peninsula there's reports that he has watched sermons by the american born cleric anwar all blocky and according to news reports sources of actually refer to inspire magazine as one of the materials found under the possession of. it's known to have published
10:09 am
a bomb making guide and investigators have also uncovered other evidence of sort of radical material. they've been labeled as clowns and loonies but now they've picked up a coup with the votes in british local elections the euro skeptic u.k. independence party a former senator one hundred forty seven seats in local councils a surprise increase from just eight prime minister david cameron reached out to those who once called a bunch of fruit cakes saying it's no good insulted them point to boycott has been following the vote held a sea change in british politics. that's been amended to stay for the u.k. independence party we've seen them come seconds in the south shields by election just behind labor and that's significant because we see a pattern emerging the past six months have seen you can't come second in full by elections some of the more we've had stunning council election results we've seen the ruling coalition parties the liberal democrats and the conservatives very
10:10 am
sustained major losses in terms of council seats it's really you can't that have come out on top now this is a party that's been seen by many as the protest vote party the people a very keen for them if they feel too frustrated with labor conservatives liberal democrats the traditional status quo political parties but i think that a lot of people are going to have to be taking them a lot more seriously now and then a lot of people didn't take them very seriously just a few days ago the senior conservative member called them clowns say they might have to have every think about that we're going to have you keep councillors across england and wales the conservative party chairman has said that clearly the tories are failed to get their message across and they're going to have to have a rethink about how they can change that now i'm joined by the city spokesman for the u.k. independence party stephen wolf stephen chances are all well and good but they're
10:11 am
not m.p.'s have as ukip actually made significant gains today yes we have what we have done is created a seismic shift in politics in the united kingdom we have put a message down to the three political parties that there is a fool for all to hear on the block we're knocking on the door of parliament for years they have criticised us and said that we're a small party i'm not with folks in form but you could be seen as the protest vote is that enough to make gains in a general election well it's a protest vote for the political elites if you want to put it in those terms they ignored us in the past and said no we want. to listen to us because we were a one party one issue party and then they said we were just one person party if we got significant second places across the country from east to show shields is a protest that is the sort of approach that i want and i want to see is expand also every political party has to put down a mountain of saying here's our policies come on come on have a go and tell us whether you like them or not that is quite right and we're ready
10:12 am
to do that we're going to have to work the numbers we're going to have to show that we can afford it in a time of austerity but i believe the launch of such a policy how we're going to pay for it and we've got the right people to actually deliver it we're going to be moving forward at an even greater speed than you see today will fifty spokesman for the u.k. independence party thank you very much for your comments although you have it much seismic shifts taking place in british politics david cameron's already said that he's going to have to work very hard to try and win back the support will there is that a very tit for you can't say for the past two days. a sunni iraqi politician is expressing fears that the country's plunging into civil war which could end up being was the ongoing conflict in syria april was the most deadly month in the country in nearly feinberg is highlighted by the death of thirty six sunni arab protesters at the end of the month meanwhile the funerals have been held for the seven victims of a sunni mosque bomb blast on friday the ongoing political unrest has brought back
10:13 am
fears that the situation could lead to a repeat of the massive terror in conflicts in iraq seven years ago some of the country's parliament has been calling for the resignation of prime minister nuri al maliki as authorities struggle to maintain order i went event is a u.s. defense analyst and he believes that the conflict will escalate father unless it gets rid of these centralized government installed with the help of the united states. i know we have ethno sectarian tensions which have been there since the since along since decades but were unleashed when the us invaded in two thousand and three and of course played out in two thousand and six and two thousand and seven where you had sectarian warfare between she and sunni i think there's probably going to be an escalating conflict in iraq the kurds used to to side with the shia government but i'm not sure that they would anymore because they have a lot of disputes with the government now that they didn't have before as you have plenty of guns that the u.s.
10:14 am
bribed the sudanese to quit attacking the united states troops when they were there and so that all these guns are left over so essentially the u.s. has during its occupation is armed gault all three groups there but the government has always been used by one group to oppress the other groups and therefore a strong central government which the u.s. left is a bad thing i think i think what should happen is decentralization what different groups run different regions with security and judiciary and maybe have a free trade area like a confederate loose confederation in these countries we might keep it stable. he was safe thanks for being with us and still to come disappointed controversy over the use of ones for the sake of security in the u.s. drone style has become a killer course for america's students with a demand for unmanned aircraft exploding the trend later in the program. on boxing basics the greek side driven out of big cities into the countryside

documentaries and spanish matters to you. a little turn to angola's stories. here. altie spanish to find out more visit. this is also welcome bok criticism over the domestic use of drones in the us is mounting while demand for them is cairo. the federal aviation administration predicts some one hundred thousand commercial unmanned aircraft will be over american skies within the next five years and as all season as the situation has been finding out building and operating the drones is becoming a coveted profession for many. unmanned aerial vehicles better known as drones are not only in the skies but might be taught at a college near you at least three u.s.
10:17 am
schools offer bachelor degrees in engineering and flying u a v's dozens more offer drone one zero one courses and classes. at the university of north dakota kicked off its four year program in two thousand and nine with just five students that number is now at one hundred twenty they've elected to major in unmanned aircraft systems and i believe the reason is that they see that as an opportunity for growth it's an emerging technology embry riddle aeronautical university in florida began training u.a.b. pilots and operators in two thousand and eleven and in fact the number of graduates to reach the hundreds in the next several years is becoming and they use are becoming more prevalent in pretty much any time and you can imagine the increased interest in the drone industry is largely fueled by post-grad starting salaries that are much higher than those for pilots flying planes or helicopters or an economy that's hasn't recovered ok so people see opportunities for jobs wherever
10:18 am
there's money to be had of course but the problem is that universities are supposed to do something more than serve the military industrial complex. to widespread debate drones are notoriously used as weapons and u.s. wars abroad the one that's under heavy scrutiny right now is that i mean aircraft are in the past been used by the military therefore the logical lead is that america will use militaristically in the united states the federal aviation administration says that ten thousand commercial drones could be used over u.s. skies within five years for surveillance and other purposes while controversy surrounding them is that a p how dare day even talk of bad drones on a domestic guise that there are many many cities in the country that have already got rights to use these drones and they will be using them so without the laws that protect our privacy we don't. not how they're going to be used most people teaching and studying u.a.b. oriented programs insist their use is much more varied than for military purposes
10:19 am
abroad and surveillance at home. where doubt when need be an issue at all border security meteorological and environmental surveillance such as sending a drone into a hurricane without having to worry about the pilots are among the applications most commonly praised and you use still the most common association with drones at home is law enforcement and it's this aspect that's making americans very uncomfortable obviously there's going to be some regulations that are going to have to be put in place so that people don't run around or at least you know police or whoever doesn't just have the ability to run around and you know go unchecked looking at you know having a ever watchful eye over the public but i don't think that will it will be a deterrent more so it'll be a challenge to make sure that you know people are happy with the implementation of the aircraft into the national airspace system officials are yet to convince americans that there are more pros than cons to drones flying over u.s. soil it's time to say wait
10:20 am
a minute hold up let's not move forward in this area without understanding where we're going and that's the problem here that's the danger the association for unmanned vehicle systems international estimates the number of american jobs in the industry will grow to over twenty three thousand over the next fifteen years. and. new york. maintaining tunneled a prison cost more than nine hundred thousand dollars. making it one of the largest expanse of prisons in the world under no website you can find out where this money goes at the time more than two thirds of the detainees are refusing food in protest against mistreatment and also that you can find a day by day timeline of the hunger strike as it nears its three month mark. also click away as also at least a holy fire illuminates well believe is in jerusalem and all over the world as people prepared to mount the resurrection of jesus christ on our website will have
